Type of Trip



  • Climb the via ferrata to the summit of Cima Capi.

  • Experience lovely views of Lake Garda, the largest lake in Italy.

  • Pass by the sober relics of World War One trenches.


Soaring above the clear tranquil waters of Lake Garda are the sheer walls of Cima Capi. Its 909-meter peak lies on the mountains of Garda in northern Italy.

The peak is accessible by an easy and exciting via ferrata, which is well equipped and was fully renovated in 2009. It leads through tunnels and trenches built during the First World War.

Once we conquer the peak we’ll witness fantastic views of the lake and the surrounding Garda mountains to the east.

The peak is part of the Rocchetta massif, which is north of Valle di Ledro and west of Lake Garda.

Lake Garda, with an area of 143 square miles (370 square kilometers), is the country’s largest lake, and the third-largest in the Alps.

Our day will begin in Biacesa with our ascent taking 6 hours. The exposed path breaks down any potential barriers to the stunning natural beauty of the Sarca Valley.

From the top of Cima Capi, we’ll descend by old walkways and war fortifications, the battle scars that are scratched into the mountainside.

The level of difficulty for this trip requires a very good level of fitness, due to the high vertical walls, and the changing of altitude during the ascent. 

Get in touch now to reserve your place on an action-packed via ferrata to the summit of the stunning Cima Capi, overlooking Lake Garda, Italy’s largest.

About the Guide


I was born and raised in Campitello, in Val di Fassa. I am a ski instructor and mountain guide.
My parents have always practiced mountaineering, both for leisure and business, and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree! Skiing and climbing were my favourite activities growing up.
As the years went by, I became more and more skilled and experienced under the watch of my father, both in techniques and safety measures. I learned the craft of mountain guide and ski instructor from him, since when his clients or students agreed, I would join them in the mountain.
But the true passion started when I moved to Tione for my studies.
I became ski instructor at 19 and mountain guide at 21.

What People are Saying about Etienne Bernard


This was our first time doing via ferrata and to be honest I was a bit worried as I\'ve never done something like this before. We\'ve been lead by Ethienne who was very knowledgeable, very kind and very helpful, sharing information and skills to help us do it the right way. The climb was steep, but they do different ones and I can honestly say this was one of the best things I have ever done! I would definately recommend this experience to anyone. We\'ve quickly realised on the day there was no way we could have done this on our own and the support and encouragement and knowledge sharing was everything we have hoped for!

Top of the world, literally!! We enjoyed our experience from start to end to say the least. Etienne was very personable, experienced and tailored our climb for the group. We felt safe and comfortable with our guide as he was a certified mountain guide and knows the Dolomites like the back of his hand. This was the highlight of our trip! Thank you!
